Publisher Comments:

Earthquakes,

volcanoes,

tsunamis.

Headline-making natural disasters with devastating consequences for millions of people. But what do we actually know about these literally earth-shaking events?

New York Times bestselling author, explorer, journalist, and geologist Simon Winchesterand#151;whoand#8217;s been shaken by earthquakes in New Zealand, skied through Greenland to help prove the theory of plate tectonics, and even charred the soles of his boots climbing a volcanoand#151;looks at the science, technology, and societal impact of these inter-connected natural phenomena.

A master nonfiction storyteller, Winchester digs deep into the powerful natural forces that shape the earth, exploring the how and why of world-changing events from the 19th-centuryand#8217;s infamous volcanic eruption at Krakatoa and the earthquake that flattened San Francisco, to the 21st-century tsunamis that devastated Indonesia and Japan. Itand#8217;s a gripping story about what happens when our seemingly unmovable planet shakes, explodes, and floodsand#151;all richly illustrated with fascinating historical and stunning contemporary photographs.

Synopsis:

"This is a spectacular book; Lauber's narrative describing the eruption, aftermath, and gradual return of life to the Mount St. Helens slopes devastated by the 1980 eruption is anchored with stellar color photographs that show each phase of the destruction and the healing. . . . This is a substantive explanation set off by superb book design".--Booklist, starred review. A Newbery Honor Book. 80 full-color photos.
